Don’t Niqab and Drive!

Germany’s top court rejects driver’s complaint that niqab ban violates religious freedom

Germany’s top court on Monday rejected a Muslim woman’s request to suspend a ban on driving while wearing a face veil.

The woman had argued that the face veil ban for drivers violated her religious freedom.

The Karlsruhe-based court found the woman, who has worn the niqab for seven years, failed to explain how the law violated her religious freedom or why she faced harm driving unveiled.
